IExecAction interface

Represents an action that executes a command-line operation.

Methods

The IExecAction interface has these methods.

Method Description
IExecAction::get_Arguments Gets or sets the arguments associated with the command-line operation.
IExecAction::get_Path Gets or sets the path to an executable file.
IExecAction::get_WorkingDirectory Gets or sets the directory that contains either the executable file or the files that are used by the executable file.
IExecAction::put_Arguments Gets or sets the arguments associated with the command-line operation.
IExecAction::put_Path Gets or sets the path to an executable file.

Remarks

This action performs a command-line operation. For example, the action could run a script or launch an executable.

When reading or writing XML, an execution action is specified in the Exec element of the Task Scheduler schema.

If environment variables are used in the Path, Arguments, or WorkingDirectory properties, then the values of the environment variables are cached and used when the Taskeng.exe (the task engine) is launched. Changes to the environment variables that occur after the task engine is launched will not be used by the task engine.
